Committee for Geelong welcomes Governor of Victoria to the State’s second largest city

Her Excellency the Honourable Linda Dessau AM, Governor of Victoria will visit Geelong to deliver the keynote speech at the Committee for Geelong's Annual Leadership Breakfast on 15 February 2017 at The Pier.

The Governor is Victoria's 29th Governor and is the first female in the role. Committee for Geelong CEO Rebecca Casson said the Governor's address would undoubtedly be a highlight of the year.

"The Committee for Geelong is pleased to facilitate this event as a way for our community to welcome the Governor to Geelong. Importantly, it is also a wonderful opportunity to hear first-hand Her Excellency's thoughts on leadership," Ms Casson said,

"To have access to a speaker of the Governor's calibre - without having to make the trip to Melbourne - is a fantastic way to start the year."

The Annual Leadership Breakfast is open to the public and full registration details are available on the Committee for Geelong's event page.
